TheGrill 2012: The Wrap's Third Annual Media Leadership Conference.
The entertainment industry is just starting to find its footing in a reconfigured economic landscape, with streaming, VOD, theatrical and physical products all contributing to a mosaic of revenue streams that make up the new economic reality.
But the battle over anti-piracy SOPA legislation highlights the critical importance of common ground between Hollywood and Silicon Valley. TheGrill is the central forum for this conversation as we curate a robust debate this year, as every year.
Here is a glimpse of the entertainment industry’s future: a viable platform for the growth of a new entertainment economy, empowered by web innovation, and laser focused on the consumer experience while enabling content to retain its core value.
TheGrill will explore these issues and more, once again convening the leaders, innovators, disrupters and deciders from the world of entertainment, media and technology.
So join moderator Sharon Waxman, CEO & Founder of The Wrap News and other top journalists for our third annual Grill 2012.
